Renewable Content Polymers
A selection of polymers that partially or fully utilise feedstocks that can be replenished on a human timescale.
You need solutions that:
• Reduced reliance on petrochemical feedstocks
• Can enhance properties of traditional or bio based polymers
• Can use waste products from other industries
• Can reduce carbon footprint
• Can reduced energy usage in production and conversion
• Can use valuable PCR or PIR (post consumer or post industrial recyclate)
• Can use naturally occurring renewable materials
We can offer:
• Renewable mineral masterbatches
• Products containing renewable content
• Additives derived from renewable waste sources
GCR Group is the world leader in the development, manufacturing and commercialization of plastic compounds and mineral masterbatches for the industrial processing industry.
Lactips produce water soluble and biodegradable thermoplastic pellets based on milk protein that can be used as a raw material for thermoforming, film and injection moulding applications.
The Radilon® D trade name identifies the long molecular chain PA6.10 grades that have been developed for injection moulding and extrusion. These products, made with 64% renewable source materials, are created using Sebacic acid – a substance of biological origin obtained from castor oil plant (Ricinus communis) seeds.
Rialti, with more than thirty years of experience, has established itself as market leader in the European polypropylene compounds industry for injection moulding and extrusion grades. They use their expertise to create polypropylene compounds from industrial manufacturing scrap and post-consumer waste.
Total’s commitment towards a circular economy has seen a range of high performance polypropylene & polyethelene grades become available. These materials contain up to 95% of post consumer recycled content and feature equivalent or improved properties when compared with virgin polymer.
By converting organic household waste into sustainable bio-based materials, UBQ™ is a novel climate positive innovation that can be used for the manufacturing of thousands of products. It is clean, sustainable, cost-effective and recyclable.
